Properties: Fine, glistening plates from ether. mp 212.8-216.8°; gives no depression of melting point when mixed with cortisone. Very sparingly sol in water, ether. Sol in acetone, methanol, alcohol. Gives a carmine-red fluorescence reaction with concd. H2SO4. Reduces ammoniacal silver nitrate soln at room temp. uv max: 242 nm (E1%1cm 500). Oxidation with chromic acid in glacial acetic acid yields 4-androstene-3,17-dione.
